This is from the famed Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection - and I must say, this makes me want to go out and buy the rest. I just may do that. Damn online polish retailers. You make it wayyyy to easy for me to spend my money. And I can never never never just buy one thing - in order to justify the shipping charges I feel the need to buy at least 10 things. And the next thing I know I have a 50 dollar order being shipping to my house. It would be one thing if this were a rare occurrence - but let me be honest here. Its really not. That is part of the reason why I started this blog - to justify my polish purchases. Or at least to provide myself was a small semblance of rationalization.
Anyhoo - as my friend brilliantdreamer was saying over at her blog (http://winterflowerunderground.blogspot.com/) that it is really kind of hard to find swatches of polish that lies outside of the OPI - China Glaze - Essie trifecta. With the exception of designer polishes. So over the next couple weeks I am going to try to not wear one of the many bottles of those brands, and instead showcase what some other cheaper, more readily available brands have to offer. Like Pure Ice (which i loveeeee! great colors! ridiculously cheap! I always get good wear! and who doesn't love stuff that can be found at the commercial mecca that is Walmart), Sally Hansen, Diamond Cosmetics (which even though it is only available via online purchases - is really awesome and if you haven't ordered from there I strongly urge you to). So... stay tuned. Hopefully tomorrow is sunny and I will be available to swatch all day long.
Wish me luck at my extra long day of school - TA lecture at around 10, and class from 2-5:45 and again from 6-9:55. Mind you I live an hour and a half away from my school... so stopping home and relaxing isn't really in the cards for me. I seriously can't wait for this semester to be over. And its only the third week.
